I had factory reset my phone. Now the phone has gone back to old version of windows. the phone is unable to update the software through over the air update. Please advise how I can update the software?
One of the best low-cost Windows smartphone, still using it until now.
Recently updating to 8.1 with Lumia Denim. Overall feature and performance are improved, though there are few issues as well.
Issues after 8.1 update:
-Battery drains much faster, unless you change it with higher capacity battery
-Camera performance are significantly downgraded, now with lot more noises and sub-par low-light images without flash. Very different compared to the 8.0 version. I recommend you to always use flash in indoor and low light conditions
-Bugs are present in the music player; sometimes the player cannot read all songs on the memory card.
-Like the previous version, heavy webpages can cause app crash on the Internet Explorer. For this problem, I recommend you to use UCBrowser instead.
-Occasional hanging problem on lock screen after heavy usage; when you lock your screen and turn it back on, the screen wouldn't turn on again, even though you're using "tap to wake up" setting. The only way to fix this is to reboot by removing the battery.
-Weak signal reception on enclosed areas and bad weather (e.g storm, rain, etc).
On the plus side, many features has been improved in majority, these are:
-Improved GPS accuracy with HERE Maps and GMaps+ (the latter is a WP clone of Google Maps)
-Added new "App Folder" option on the start menu
-Increased 3G and HSDPA DL/UL capability, up to 21Mbps
-No more lag or crashes on most apps, an issue common with previous WP versions.
-Apps update automatically from Windows Store, when the connection is good.
-Despite the degraded camera, the new Lumia Camera app adds some professional features to enhance the photography experience
-Apps can be moved to SD card, just like Android.

It sucks. Dont even think of purchasing this thing. Go for others. Trust me. My father bought it for me last year and it finally showed "unable to find a bootable option lumia". sent it for repairs and voila, it's still like that.
